Chicago, dubbed the “city of broad shoulders” by the poet Carl Sandburg, will open its arms to the National Hemophilia Foundation for its 63rd Annual Meeting, November 10-12, 2011.
“Inspiration in the Windy City” is this year’s theme for the three-day conference, which offers educational sessions, networking opportunities and social events for all ages. Individuals and families come with questions and concerns, but leave with answers, encouragement and hope.
Sessions tentatively planned for consumers include: “Super Dad—How to be a Real Man”; “What’s My Name? Dealing with the Diagnosis of ‘Symptomatic Carrier’”; and “Your Ailing Liver.”
The two-day Medical Track for Researchers and Physicians includes a poster abstracts presentation and reception.Check NHF’s Web site, for updated information on Annual Meeting registration and how to book your hotel room later this spring.
